The 104 Dapchi school girls freed by Boko Haram fighters are on their way to Abuja to meet President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.
The 104 girls and two other freed abducted girls were handed over by the Army to the Information and Culture minister, Lai Mohammed, in Maiduguri, on Wednesday.
Theatre commander of Operation Lafiya Dole, Major General Rogers Nicholas, handing them over, said they included 104 girls from the college and two others.
The army commander explained that the remaining six of the abducted girls from the college are still unaccounted for.
Five of the six girls, according to one of the freed girls, died after they were abducted, while another was being held by the insurgents for refusing conversion to Islam.
Boko Haram fighters brought the abducted girls into Dapchi on Tuesday night.
Their arrival in a convoy of vehicles caused panic in the town.
The insurgents invaded the town on February 19 this year abducting 110 girls from the school.Please subscribe to our newsletter
